but if you are a die-hard fan who plans to see the game in person. kron 4's vicki liviakis fills us in on the cost of a ticket to the superbowl. sure it's the biggest game around, but fans of the 49ers be prepared. the superbowl comes with a first off, the nfl held a lottery to a thousand tickets available to purchase. if you don't win the lottery and are on the lookout for a ticket, welcome to the secondary market. where as of monday morning the average price for a seat at the superbowl is $3,195 dollars. ka-ching! the cheapest we could find is $1,785 dollars. of course the official list prices according to the nfl are $850, $950, and $1,250 for the superbowl upper and lower bowl and club seats but that's daydreaming. one online ticket for a
8:36 pm
good seat was going for $12,575 dollars, but even if you're willing to pay thru the nose, there's no telling if the ticket is real until gametime. the only guarenteed secondary ticket seller is the nfl ticketmaster ticket exchange. buy from anybody else and you're on your own. good luck. in san francisco, vicki >> pam: of course, the price of a ticket is not the only thing you'll have to pay for if you're heading to the superbowl kron four's charles clifford has a look at the superbowl travel costs. for trains, planes and automobiles >> reporter: so, maybe your thinking about catching a plane to new orleans for the super bowl. let's say you want to leave on saturday febuary 2nd, watch the game on sunday and then come home monday morning. i checked a few online travel sites, and roundtrip flights from sfo to new orleans on those dates are running between 1,275 dollars, which includes multiple stops along the way, up to 1,887 dollar for a direct flight.. round trip. now, of course there's a lot of variation in the
8:37 pm
price if you're willing to leave earlier in the week or come back later, but expect to pay over a thousand dollars if you want to fly to the game. now, maybe you're the thinking of making it a road trip. it's 2,272 miles from san francisco to new orleans, if you consider that the average car gets about 20 miles per gallon and gas is running an average of 3.30 per gallon right now, a round trip would cost about $750 dollars. not to bad, but expect to spend more than 60 hours driving... might want to pack a snack. another option, believe it or not, is that you could actually take an amtrak train. the upside is that a ticket from the bay area to new orleans would only cost about 300 bucks, the downside is that it's a 78 hour trip, which means you would have to spend more a train.. and it detours through chicago. finally, there's always the greyhound would cost between 200 and 300 dollars. if you from san francisco at 10am on friday febuary 1st, you
8:38 pm
would arrive in new orleans around 2:40 sunday afternoon. finally, whatever you take planes, traines or busses, buy your tickets now. prices are bound to go up the longer you wait. clifford kron 4 news. stay with kron4, as we continue in the lead up to the niners- ravens super bowl. updates also available on, and our facebook and twitter feeds. >> 20's to start a bit warmer in oakland. 45 in san francisco, daly city and redwood city and the sunnyvale but taking another look outside a beautiful view. for the east bay inland valleys. and also mid-60s in half moon bay. low 60s also through san francisco. your full forecast coming up including the chance of showers i will tell you all about if.
